Sometimes, you could even get curb service

The writer is responding to a story in Sunday’s Post, “Hap’s is changing owners.”

I started going to Hap’s the year after my husband died. I was using the RITA van to go downtown to the pool and started riding my scooter through town to Hap’s. I  still think y’all have the best hamburgers and hot dogs in town.  I can’t get there as often anymore and I miss it.

Greg, I appreciate all the “curb service” when I could not get in there. You will be missed by many of us, but I wish the best for Jamie. I hope to get by there more in the spring! God bless you both in your new endeavors.

— Linda S. Beck


Favorite funnies

I am so glad that Sarah and John Hartpence got the funnies that they missed back.

We would like ours back, too. “Get Fuzzy” and “Non Sequitur” were two that we looked forward to seeing.

My suggestion is to ditch the horoscope or move it so we can get Satchel and Bucky back. Keep on rockin’ in the free world.

— Bill and Julie Kjems


Let Donald do it

Let’s see now: Knows more about defeating ISIS yet nominates four retired generals for his cabinet. Mistrusts the FBI and CIA. Knows a lot about hacking that nobody else knows.

Hey, we can save tons of money by doing away with Homeland Security, the FBI, the CIA and any other agency that’s supposed to be protecting this great nation.  Just leave everything to “Know it all, Do it all Donald.”

My take on this?  God help us all!

— Herb Stark
